Ground Monitoring Clamp With Wall Mounted Indicator

Ground Monitoring Clamp

The precision and reliability of the Bond-Rite® REMOTE provides enhanced safety and security by continuously testing the connection of the clamp to the container or other conductive item of plant in a complete loop made through the designated grounding point.

The Bond-Rite REMOTE indicator station houses the ground loop monitoring circuit and a bright green LED which pulses continuously when it detects that the resistance between the equipment to be grounded and the site’s verified earth ground (e.g. copper tape) is 10 ohms or less.

Once connected the Bond-Rite REMOTE continuously monitors the resistance of the circuit between the equipment and the verified ground point (e.g. wall-mounted bus bar).

The pulsing green LED provides process operators with a continuous visual reference point that enables them to monitor the ground status of equipment at risk of accumulating static electricity and discharging static sparks.

The standard GRP enclosure is static dissipative and suitable for general processing environments. The stainless steel enclosure (SS 316) is designed to cater for hygienic or corrosive environment specifications.

Both enclosures provide an IP 66 degree of ingress protection and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor installation.

The Bond-Rite REMOTE can be powered with an intrinsically safe 9V battery (included) or an external 230/115 V AC power supply which can power up to 10 individual indicator stations.

The Bond-Rite REMOTE is an ideal solution for applications and installations where interlocks with the process are not possible.
